I must love procrastinating .... I do it all the time!
No, I didn't build the Bug Hotel today!  I'll do it later! 
Today I decided to get rid of more grass. When I started working on the back of the garden I envisaged huge borders and some grass but as the changes have been made I now know I just want a path meandering through tall flowers so the grass has to go.  Last year we visited a stone merchants where I had seen a fish mosaic and I quite fancied that in the middle of a patio area on this square.  Off we went on a whim to buy the fish.
The place was locked up when we got there.  It had gone into liquidation. 
A guy told me to call at the house next door and I might get a bargain.  He didn't have to tell me twice. 
I didn't get the fish ... it had been sold ... but I did get 13 edging blocks for £30 (originally sold at £8.50 each!)
I've placed them along the front path to see what they will look like ... very pleased with them.
Then I got some normal edging blocks and six bags of white stone. 

Well it wasn't what I thought I would achieve today but I'm happy! 
Yes, I know it doesn't go in a straight line ... that's part of the charm of it ... really there was a great big root growing exactly where I needed to dig so I had to go round it!
I once saw a cartoon of a protest march where a woman was shouting, "WHAT DO WE WANT?" The answer was, "Procrastination!"
First woman, "WHEN DO WE WANT IT?"
Answer, "Tomorrow!"

  2. There's always something else to do isn't there?

  3. Procrastination, I did not know the word so I had to use the translator, but I should say never mind, tomorrow there's another day. The edging blocks are really a great find, beautiful.
